Cassandra, I appreciate your interest but it looks like my work has to go unpublished. I’ve written three manuscripts and have nearly completed a fourth. However, years ago I learned that with no marketing platform – some name recognition and the ability to promote your own work – publishers and agents have no interest, at least with regard to general interest nonfiction. This remained the case even after a bestselling author in my field wrote a foreword for two of my manuscripts.

If I’d been Martin Luther instead of Paul Martin and had a church door for thesis-nailing, then instead of “Justification by faith” mine would read, “Faith needs no justification.” My central thesis is that faith and a life of meaning are matters of direct experience and consciousness that require no doctrinal support or validation. I do feel that this idea and how I’ve articulated it might have merited a place in a wider public discourse.
